it successfully with pat moynihan in new york. he ran against william buckley's brother jim. at the first debate, buckley turned to him and starts bashing comes right out of the court with moynihan. he looks up and says, oh, the mudslinging begins. [laughter] >> thank you. tell us and generalize for us, historians have not typically have access to anything resembling this kind of material with the exception of nixon and whatever. how were we to regard the source of information? what is it? you have to check it? is a good way to his? >> i think it is good to go. what is wonderful about these tapes is the immediacy of them. also, we do have other presidential tapes to listen to. one of the things that i actually love about these tapes of the conversations between president kennedy and his brother. when you listen to the nixon tapes, they have a certain quality. then you listen to the two kennedy brothers talking about how mean this guy is. it sounds so quaint as opposed to some of what we heard on the nixon tapes. i'm sure that there were other words used to describe problematic figures. but it r
nominated, jim buckley got up and said, i look forward to running against professor moynihan. jim buckley is referring to you as professor moynihan. pat said, the mudslinging has begun. [laughter] what you are in for tonight, however, it is a lecture on political philosophy. take notes, there will be a test. in 1953, the year in which the words "under god" were added to the pledge of allegiance, it he proclaimed the fourth of july and national day of prayer. on that day, eisenhower fished in the morning, golfed in the afternoon, and played bridge in the evening. there were prayers -- perhaps when the chief executive faced a daunting putt. this was not his first foray into the darkened ground of the relationship between religion and american politics. three days before christmas in 1952, president elect ike made a speech in which he said "our form of government has no sense unless it is founded in the deeply felt religious faith and i do not care what it is." he received a much ridicule from his cultured despise years. his professed indifference to the major of the religious faith. it is t
, the migration, jim crow, the depression and that all their steps forward and steps backward reflect if of who we are. so i think i thought about it like that. >> actually i was wondering if you thought of it as a smaller project? in other words not that you would not have to put in context the individuals that make family tree and some of whom we see scrolling behind us but it strikes me in the writing of the book that it contained a social history, that it was a black wife, broke -- both rural urban, southern sweeping and it was intimate. i was just wondering, did that scale happen as a result of the actual research when you put pen to paper fingertip to keyboard and you thought, this is much more than i thought it would be when i set out to do this? >> i think that i always had an idea that her family was reflect that, but you are right that when you are in it it becomes something else. one of the things that actually is a practical matter as a writer which became clear to me is that when you are digging back this far you don't have the voices that you need to bring the story to life. and some

back to "squawk box." we are just seconds away from weekly jobless claims and rick santelli and jim iuorio are standing by at the cme. you know, rick, whenever anyone compared to the cliff to t.a.r.p. i never really bought that. because t.a.r.p., i mean, the commercial paper markets were freezing up. it was -- i just don't think it's really the same thing, is it? it's not as front and center as that. and i -- we've talked about it so much, it's hard for me to believe the markets could just all of a sudden decide they're going to fall off a cliff like the fiscal cliff itself. what do you think, rick? >> no, i somewhat agree. i think the reason i brought it up, and i think i was one of the first to bring it up is, it just gives you a market impetus to get something done. but i think categorically they're nothing the same. t.a.r.p. was about some real issues. fiscal cliff is about being afraid, i think. >> let's do the numbers. >> 350,000 on initial jobless claims. that is definitely less than we were looking for. it's a dozen less than the revised number you're looking at last week. 3
they get there in the first place? >> well, that man you just saw harris jim swayze was walking four dogs. one of the dogs ran into the ice and fell through holding himself up with just front paws. jim swayze went after the dogs but the ice kept breaking away. he called 911. then called his cousin who is san animal control officer. the cousin's boyfriend showed up. went after the dog and right as he reached ice broke away. and he got stuck in the mud below and had to wait an hour for firefighters to arrive. listen. the big concern was the dog. they the dog had been in the without for why quite a while. the amount of time spent in the water is very short lived. you can't spent a lot of time in these cold temperatures and hope to survive. the rescue actually went pretty quickly. >> it went quickly but all tolled it still took an hour and a half before they pulled bart out of that water, harris. >> harris: that's a long time to be in the water. how is the dog doing? the hound dog is doing fine now. but bart is 11 years old. first the vet was very worried about him. they rapid him up in elect

democratic primary over a guy named jim shannon. then came the biggest break of all, on the same today voters turned on elliot richardson. he was one of the few heroes of watergate. but the republicans dumped him in their primary in favor of a right wing businessman. only then was john kerry's path to the senate and all the prominence and all the opportunities that senate seat has afforded him, only then was that clear. in politics we tend to ridicule losers or ignore them. but john kerry's road back is a reminder of how arbitrary this game really is. all right, that does it for "the cycle." karen finney, you're in for martin bashir and it's all yours. >> all right. it's wednesday, december 26th. we hope you're having a wonderful holiday because the president's is about to end. boehner and the boys? what's the rush? ♪ >> first of all, we want to say merry christmas. >> president obama is cutting short his christmas break with the fiscal cliff looming large. >> the fiscal cliff gets closer. congress now has six days left to make a deal. >> aloha, hawaii. >> to my republican coll
under a jim crow system, okay? now we're talking about the people who get preferences now were born in 1994. that doesn't seem like very long ago to somebody my age. 994. that's, you know, 30 years after the 1964 civil rights act. according to the latest census, one in four americans now describe themselves as being something other than white. african-americans are not the largest minority group anymore. they haven't been for a while. latinos are a larger minority group than african-americans are. and neither one of them is the fastest-growing racial minority group. the fastest-growing racial minority group is asian-americans. african-americans are growing at only a 12.3% rate, white americans at only a 5.7% rate. another rapidly-growing group are people like our president who could check more than one box in the race and ethnicity section of their questionnaire. seems to me, and i think in the supreme court, that in a country like that we cannot have a legal regime that sorts people according to their skin color and what country their an access or to haves came from and treat some

. with weaker than expected retail numbers we will be heading into a recession next year. shibani: jim laventhol says in many ways yes, but it won't be a disaster. welcome to the show. you heard what adam said, that the consumer which accounts for 70% of the gdp, spending, they are pulling back and pulled back this year and during holiday shopping season. how close are we to start getting into this talk of getting into recession again? >> we're pretty close by i appreciate your pudding a qualifier that we don't have to go into a panic. there are a couple reasons for that. if you look at the stock market which is mainly where people place risk bets on growing their assets it is arguably fairly priced, somewhere between 13 times and 14 times this year's earning so not like there's a wild overvaluation that needs to be corrected, nor is this like in 2000 where we had an overinvestment boom from telecom and tech spending more 2007 with the housing boom. you have none of those imbalances. the financial sector is in great shape. even though gdp of the u.s. is flashed the first half of the year which i
on the fiscal cliff, some tea partiers seem ready to compromise on taxes. here's jim acosta. >> reporter: for the tea party, change is brewing on capitol hill. florida republican alan west who rode the tea party wave in congress two years ago only to be swept out in november has already lost its office which is being prepped by painters for its new occupant. >> they say he's an outsider, a reformer. >> reporter: another tea partier, kansas congressman tim huleskamp, was booted from his seat on the budget committee he believes to john boehner wanted to send a message, to get in line for a deal on the fiscal cliff. >> we have determine thursday is some secret scorecard. a scorecard which based on testimony votes -- >> reporter: i think there's house -- >> i think there's potentially i hope not to push a tax increase through the house, and we will see what happens. >> reporter: while the speaker denied he's bringing down the hammer, stating in a letter that "there is no scorecard," -- >> stop spending now! stop spending now! >> reporter: it's clear, tea partiers are not rallying to shut dow
and jim was forced out of office. they went after newt. that is one of the things that started this movement. over time, i think it has become political as well as personal. much more political and personal. >> she said raising cain, are -- you will the the gavel for the oversight committee and use that to raise the number of investigations especially of the clinton administration. what do you see as your legacy of that tenure? >> i think bill clinton, president clinton and secretary as secretary -- hilary as secretary of state do not like me very much. i was chair of the government oversight committee during the time we were investigating whitewater and we were investigating campaign contributions that came from sources outside the united states and from various people. there was an awful lot to that. we had people testifying like ohnny chonung, they had contributed money to gain favor with the white house. and they came into the kitchen at hong kong and said we wonder -- we like your president and we want to contribute to his campaign. the man who said that was the equivalent
in law enforcement take notice. >> jim jones, koresh, history has shown that these things happen. when religious zealots take charge of a group of people. >> a point of concern, the church-owned grocery store, the only big store in the community, was abruptly sold down. -- shut down. not only was this the sole grocery store in the flds community, but it was a gathering point. authorities are afraid its closing may signify something dire. >> is it your belief that warren jeffs believes the store doesn't need to be open because the earth is ending. the end of time is near and his people don't need to buy grocery nims? >> yes. >> others are driving out of time to shop. so what do warren jeffs' faithful followers have to say about all this? they're told to never talk to reporters, and some use their reporter intimidation technique, large vehicles speeding and screeching by us. and then emitting black smoke for added emphasis. one of the things we're hearing is he's been talking about the possible end of time, end of the world, and that people need to be faithful. is that your understanding
and choice and possibility and sacrifice. so wonder if you could go back. i know you were in the jim crow south in baker county, in georgia and you were daddy's girl. and trying to get all gangster driving the tractor at 4 years old and in the streets and neighborhood. tell us about that. >> well, you know, we were in baker county, out, you hear about, you read about some of the i have haves of earlier years but the gator and the sheriff in our county wanted to be known as the gator. the gator actually ruled every thing, everyone in the county. you can't imagine looking at the western from earlier days anyone like him but he was worse than what you have seen in your worst western. but growing up in that we, my family lived, my great-great grandparents had come to baker county. i don't know whether they came as slaves or not but i know they end up there as share croppers and with the up tent on buying land and that they did. they bought enough land that the area where i grew up was still today called hawkins town and lots of family. but it was that way, you know, the hawkins lived in one a
is out of step with its members. joining me now is virginia congressman jim moran. briefly, let me ask you first about the fiscal cliff because i have you here. you and your members will get back to work tomorrow. i'm wondering is there going to be a last ditch effort to avoid this and what do you think is going to happen? >> i think the likelihood is that we go over the cliff, martin. and, of course, that's my primary focus because my congressional district would be the hardest hit if beat go over the fiscal cliff. i've got tens of thousands of federal employees and a great deal of defense spending would be at risk. so if we don't suspend the sequester and it looks like this very small deal may not even achieve that, then i'd have to be a "no" vote. so if i had to guess right now, i don't think we're going to be able to reach a deal no matter how small it might be. of course, at the very best, all we would do is stumble forward for a couple more months until we hit the debt ceiling and then face another crisis which is really a crisis of confidence in the government. i just can't imag

from jim in hot springs national park, arkansas. what kind of business do you own? caller: the last one i had, i was in the construction business. and when i sold my last house i decided to move too hot springs, the first resort in america. host: you are a retired business owner? caller: right. host: if you were still running your business, how would you be looking at the fiscal cliff? caller: i've got some ideas i would like to say. the first thing we would do is eliminate all the people that do the free housing and food stamps and by about all those office expenses and just go with an earned income credits that would not exceed 15 cows and dollars per year. -- $15,000.ould that affec it would help reduce the need for taxes, so they would have more money for others things, rather than paying taxes. if the current welfare system pays people as much as $45,000 a year to add up all the benefits, the free medical, with medical,to doctors or hospitals would cause normally $1,500 a month, but an insurance company for a family, and they get about $800 a month for free housing and another $70

jim ramstead and patrick kennedy talking about being in recovery, and the fact that good people get this disease. it's a bad disease. but good people get it and successful people get it and we can recover. >> as she mentioned, we talked about it in the past, it's been a disease that men have battled. what is it you think people will be able take away from the documentary to open their eyes to the problem at hand? >> well, i think two-fold. one, this stigma, it is interesting that for mothers in particular, there's this idea in our society that we should be perfect and on all the time. i think there is a real harsh judgment against women that might pick up a drink to cope and before they know it, this disease really grabs them. i think that's one thing. and i also think understanding the psychological pressures that women are under nowadays is very, very key. seeing that in our sisters and our mothers and our friends and our children, being able to understand more and deal with it with compassion and sympathy instead of judgment. >> the movie will be premiering here in the d.c. area.

now so who wants to ask a question. >> in the back. >> thank you. jim, washington post. a justice breyer, thank you for those remarks. i wonder from your visits to china your conversations with the students there and the officials if you have a sense that we are on a path where an independent judiciary can be formed in a system that is ruled by the communist party that puts other values much more on the supreme level than the ones that you are citing do you have a sense that the party is willing to make the kind of compromises that essentially would put it out of business? >> u.s. to be a question i can't answer so far as you are talking about the party because i don't we have an entire generation of students that was my impression the kind of rule law and the values that are in our constitution as worthwhile and important to. the value becomes one at least because it is now just a question are what of the means and what can you see as people start thinking about these means, and people eventually -- and some article with me there is no dictatorship or what ever is so awful and i
